Centre for Digital Life Norway

Centre for Digital Life Norway (DLN) is a national center for biotechnology training, research and innovation.

DNL is a response to the strategic initiative “Digital Life – convergence for innovation” funded by the Norwegian Research Council (NRC). DLN is a virtual center, currently involving twelve major research projects, and managed by a joint leadership network from NTNU, UiB and UiO. The project portfolio will be increased as projects are welcome to join the centre.
